03 July 2016 Kent, WA – It was back-to-back events in an E.T. Series with points to be had in close competition this weekend at Bremerton Raceway. Weekends like this can change your standings overnight. Big moves can be had to move up in the standings with the closeness of the points.
An early out by those ahead of you will get you up on the wheel to take advantage of it, but don’t get too eager – the “red” light is still there to take you out. By the end of racing on Sunday there were a number of new number one’s in the classes setting up for the remaining races to be quite contested.
The big prize for the weekend was the John Kilgor Footbrake Race. Old school foot on the “brake” and mash the gas is the “rule”. Turn off your race car’s electronics and remember how you raced in the past. It came with a winner payout that totaled “30” one hundred dollar bills and payouts many places down.
Win a few rounds and you were playing with “house” money that packed the lanes with racers looking to win some money. Put together and overseen by the Sears Family Racing and Gary Howe and his construction company. It has been growing each year since its inception shows how popular it has become.
Great job by all and bigger and better next year. We’ll begin the winners list with the footbrake winner Rob Boardway who got the pile of cash yet I think the “big” winner of the weekend was Dustin Ward, who first picked up the “Pro” class then pocketed the runner up cash in the footbrake race on Saturday then repeat in the “Pro” class on Sunday. Talk about in a “zone”- he was in it this weekend and it showed. Congrats to all the weekends winners all 25 of them.
